Dcp2: an mRNA decapping enzyme that adopts many different shapes and forms

Wurm, Jan Philip ; Sprangers, Remco


Eukaryotic mRNAs contain a 5' cap structure that protects the transcript against rapid exonucleolytic degradation. The regulation of cellular mRNA levels therefore depends on a precise control of the mRNA decapping pathways. The major mRNA decapping enzyme in eukaryotic cells is Dcp2. It is regulated by interactions with several activators, including Dcp1, Edc1, and Edc3, as well as by an ...
